I considered Boykins but chose to go with field bred cockers. Bought 2. Smartest easiest to train dogs I have ever been around. Mind you they are 4 months old but already sitting and staying and retrieving in yard work.
They are great dogs. Good in the home as well as hunting. I have a Brandywine dog and getting another on in a couple of weeks.Go to Boykin Spaniel Society web page they have allot of good information. Expect to have to wait on a litter. http://www.boykinspaniel.org/
